Window Manager of the Year


If you are looking for KDE, Gnome, MATE, Unity, etc they are in the Desktop Environment Award.

NOTE: Window Managers that are rarely used outside of their Desktop Environment counterparts are no longer included in this category, based on feedback. This includes: Compiz, KWin, Marco, Muffin, Mutter and xfwm4.

Surprisingly, I still prefer Window Maker. I seem to have stopped changing my favorite window manager every few months. Good.
